ISLAMABAD: The government has come up with a new country wide electricity load management plan for the summer season.
A statement issued by Ministry of Water and Power in Islamabad on Tuesday said that the plan has been prepared keeping in view better management, system improvements and addition of new generation.
According to the plan, six hours load management will be observed in urban areas, eight hours in rural areas and zero load shedding in industrial sector except during peak summer months.
The statement said in areas where the recoveries are upto the mark and losses are within permissible limit, the load hours will remain within the announced schedule.
However, the ministry has chalked out a special load management plan in areas where the losses are greater and recoveries are lower.
The ministry also appealed the consumers to adopt energy conservation during their daily routine. This can substantially reduce the load shedding hours.
